The district nurses provide nursing care for housebound patients with acute illnesses, post-operative care needs and chronic illness or disability.
They are also very involved in care for terminally ill patients, providing nursing and co-ordinating care from other agencies.
The receptionists are trained to listen to your needs, requests and queries. They take and pass on messages. They can give you information about the practice and facilities. They also make appointments appropriate to your assessment of urgency.
Please remember that if the receptionist needs to ask you questions, they are carrying out our policy which is aimed at making the practice run smoothly. They have been told to elicit information and are not being nosey. They are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the doctors and nurses.

Within the practice the approved trainer is Dr N Patel , but the whole team is included in training in some way.

Students come to The Blackheath Standard Surgery to gain experience in General Practice, but also just to learn the basics, like how to talk to patients, how to take a medical history and examination techniques.
